Basic double bedroom in a cute little house in the Medina. Shared bathroom with shower and hot water on the same floor. Perfect for those looking for budget accommodation and basic facilities (including Wi-Fi!) in a great location less than 10min away by foot from the Jema El Fna Square. Sunny and quiet terrace perfect to relax. All utilities included, bed linen and towels provided.

The space

The bedroom is small but has everything needed for a comfortable life. Two bedside tables, one with lamp, wardrobe for your clothes, big table and chair. Thick inside curtain on door and window to keep the room isolated from the cold in winter and the heat in summer so it stays comfortable without any major devices. There is one ventilator and one radiator available, though, in case it gets too warm or too cold.
The house is small but comfortable enough. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one fully equipped kitchen and a terrace which serves as a sunny lounge room. It also has a shaded area to cope with the heat of Marrakech.

Guest access

With the room comes access to internet, fully equipped kitchen with fridge, washing machine, cooking utensils, silverware and spices, bathroom with shower and sunny terrace with space to hang your clothes to dry.
The room comes also with towels and bed linen, so you can use that space on your suitcase for something else.

Interaction with guests

I like to go and meet the person at the square to walk them to house so as to show the way there. Then I come by the house two or three times a week and like to interact and exchange about the guest's experience if we cross each other's path. I'm also available at all times through Airbnb message or phone. It is ideal for independent travelers who still like to be able to have the insight of a local.

Other things to note

There is one cat in the house, Candy, and permanent resident. I buy the food and usually guests are happy to feed her twice a day and change her water.
There is also Nezha, cleaning lady and general helper, that comes roughly twice a week to clean all the common areas of the house. She does not enter the rooms if they are occupied.
There is one key for the front door and I provide locks for the bedroom door, if you require one.

The riad is very close to the medina. The room is a good size and I was provided with everything I needed upon arrival. The cats are very sweet and definitely made my stay that much more enjoyable. There is a bit of dust in the place (for those with allergies).

Patricia met me at a prearranged location to guide me to the house. The house is very nice and in the Medina. The room was comfortable and clean. The showers had hot water. The internet worked well, given the location. Patricia is a very welcoming and friendly person. I very much enjoyed staying with her and I would not hesitate to stay again.

I had a great experience staying at Patricia's place. First off, making arrangements was very easy--Patricia was responsive and communicative. The room itself was spacious and comfortable and the location was very convenient--most places were within walking distance with the Plaza Jema El Fna being only a five-minute walk away. Patricia herself was a great hostess--very relaxed and easy going, she was able to answer my questions and provided me insight into Moroccan culture. The cats were also very friendly and provided good company. Overall I was very satisfied with my stay and would highly recommend it.

Patricia/this house couldn't have been better! I lived here for nearly a month in July (the hottest in Marrakech) and my stay was still comfortable and more wonderful than I anticipated. :) The room is spacious and clean and cool even in July, and Patricia has two very, very friendly cats named Elephant and Mouse. I am actually terribly allergic to cats and brought medication, but didn't need it because for some reason I was not allergic to them. Anyway, the location of Patricia's house is great. Less than 10 minutes walking from the Djemma el-Fna, it is close to everything you could need - all the major tourist sites as well as the most interesting local ones, corner stores for groceries and water. Quite seriously there was nothing I could not walk to. Patricia herself is also an exceptional host. We ended up fasting for Ramadan and preparing the ftour meal together, and she's a really good cook and makes a delicious harira soup. Plus, she's super generous and even lent me her yoga mat which was much appreciated. I've probably typed too much, but my point is that if you can, you should stay here! It's the best way to live, for real, in Marrakech.

Staying with Patricia was great! Good location, nice house, quiet, great cats. Patricia was extremely helpful as a host. She is quite knowledgeable about the culture, speaks about 7 languages so can communicate well with anyone. She met us at the taxi and walked us through the medina maze to her place which was a big help. She wanted us to make ourselves at home which was much appreciated. Our room was quite adequate, the shower was always hot, the price to stay was very reasonable, lovely terrace to enjoy, laundry facilities. Can't do better when you travel. If want to experience Marrakech in a very comfortable and relaxed way, I would recommend staying at this guest house.

I can highly recommend Patricia's place.. and Patricia of course! She is such a warm and welcoming host, picked me up from the bus station and even did some grocery shopping for me when I got sick. You can ask her everything you want, she is really friendly and always pleased to give you information. The house is very clean and esthetically furnished! For me it was the perfect Marrakesh experience! See you soon! :)

This is a very nice place and patricia is a very nice and helpful person! It is in the medina but not scary at all ( I was afraid a little in the beginning). Super!

Living in Marrakech for over 6 years, I have extensive knowledge on the city and culture to help you make the best of your stay in the city and the country.
I still like the contrasts and contradictions, the fact that there is some order in the chaos. Moroccan people's smiles and helpfulness.
As a host, I like to meet my guests in person and give them a bunch of tips on how to best enjoy the city according to what their preferences are. A lot find that staying in my house in the old medina adds another layer of interest to the experience.
